COMICS AND MEDICINE: Medical Narrative in Graphic Novels

Confirmed keynote lectures by Paul Gravett, Brian Fies and Marc Zaffran

This one-day interdisciplinary conference aims to explore medical narrative in graphic novels and comics. Although the first comic book was invented in 1837 the long-format graphic narrative has only become a distinct and unique body of literary work relatively recently. Thanks in part to the growing Medical Humanities movement, many medical schools now encourage the reading of literature and the study of art to gain insights into the human condition. A serious content for comics is not new but representation of illness in graphic novels is an increasing trend. The melding of text and visuals in graphic fiction and non-fiction has much to offer medical professionals, students and, indeed, patients. Among the growing number of graphic novels, a sub-genre exploring the patients’ and the carers’ experiences of illness or disability has emerged.

Presentations will examine the development and trends evident in medically themed graphic fiction and manga, the relative strengths of the medium and the motivation behind its creation, whether by healthcare professionals, service users or carers. The use of ‘comics’ in medical and public education, and their role in health communication and scholarship will also be discussed.

Alex also talks to cartoonist Martin Rowson - who is currently exhibiting his illustrations for ‘New Humanist’ magazine at Menier Gallery (51 Southwark Street until June 12th) – about his adaptation of the humorous and experimental Eighteenth century novel The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman into graphic novel format and Dickon Harris chats to comedienne Josie Long about creating ‘zines and comics for distribution at her gigs and contributing comic strips to Alan Moore’s new magazine Dodgem Logic
